Re: May 10, Minor League updates
Frazier hits against LHP and plays lots of spots where the Reds already have guys who hit against LHP. Francisco hits against RHP and plays a position that has 4 other guys on the roster that can't do that (Frazier and his .713 OPs vs. RHP included). Having Francisco to add to the line-up against RHP would do more to upgrade the team than those other guys. Frazier can go in and hit against LHP, but he'd be replacing a guy who already hits against LHP.
This brings me back to my original point. The Reds need a guy who has a chance to hit against RHP who can play a position where the Reds don't have that. Right now Costanzo might be the best chance they have to do that.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
